BLOG TOUR - The Babysitter’s Secret



Everything I thought I knew about my life is a lie. My mother revealed a terrible, dangerous secret in her last letter to me. But, with her death, any chance of knowing the truth has disappeared. I’ll have to do whatever it takes to find out for myself.

Going back to the house where I was born, I find a family living the life I’d always dreamed of. And when 
Cecelia, the mother, mistakes me for the new nanny, I seize the chance to move in. Maybe, being in the house every day and night, I will remember more, uncover more, about the secret that haunts me…

But this family is not the happy one it appears from the outside. Cecelia is angry, unpredictable, unstable. She is not the mother these children deserve. They are scared of her, and rightly so.

As my memories start to crystalize, I am ever more determined to shelter them from harm. Because history has a horrible way of repeating itself, and I’ll do everything I can to protect these children. But how long can I stay here, undetected, pretending to be someone I’m not? And if the children end up in danger, what will I have to do to save them…?

With twists no reader will EVER see coming, this incredibly gripping psychological thriller is perfect for fans of The HousemaidThe Widow and The Housewarming.

Sasha arrives at a home for a very specific reason. She has clouded memories of her past and she is seeking clarity. However, she is mistaken for the new nanny. Sasha quickly decides to go along with it. As this is a dual POV book, there is also Emily, recently released from a mental institution. With regard to Emily, she is constantly hearing a child crying. However, she appears to be alone in this. In this thrilling book, there must be a connection between Sasha and Emily. 

As this story developed, so did Sasha and the situation she was in as she was desperate to unlock the secrets of her past, but also her relationship with the children she suddenly became responsible for. With a clever plot and shocking twists this latest book by Casey Kelleher kept me riveted page after page. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.


Casey Kelleher was born in Cuckfield, West Sussex, and she grew up as an avid reader.

Whilst working as a beauty therapist and bringing up their three children together with my husband, she penned her debut novel Rotten to the Core. Its success meant that Casey could give up her day job and concentrate on writing full time.
